How to write fractions as mixed number

Report as

Divide the top number by the lower number as many times as it can, to give a whole number. The remainder (always smaller than the lower number) is now placed as the top number. A good way of addressing this problem is assuming you have five oranges to divide between two people (5/2). Each will get 2 whole ones and 1 will remain. For them to share equally, you will divide the 1 between the two people and give them 1/2 each. Each gets 2 1/2.

divide the denominator from the numerator and the number you get is the big number and the remainder you get from it is the numerator and the denominator never changes

Divide the numerator into the denominator and the number of times it goes in, thats the bigg number. the remaindor is the numerator and you keep the denominator

Ex- 19/4
- 19 divided by 4= 4 remaindor 3
so its writen now as 4 3/4

Remember, bottom into top. Divide the denominator into the numerator and your answer is the whole number. If there is a remainder, put the remainder over the original denominator and put that fraction beside the whole number.
Ex. 14/3
Bottom into top. 14 divided by 3 is 4. Your whole number is 4. Remainder- 2. Remainder over original denominator- 2/3.
